I have just seen the line-up for IrishDev’s Java Conference and it is extremely impressive.
The conference is on in Dublin on November 7th and has speakers from Apache, Sun, Iona, JBoss, Oracle, and Microsoft amongst others.
Kudos to Fergal and the guys in IrishDev for organising what looks like will be a phenomenal day out for anyone with any interest in Java.
Sun announced today that they were releasing Java under a GPL license. This can only be a good thing.
Sun’s Jonathan Schwartz’ take on it is here and it is an interesting read.
More over on TechMeme.
Robert Scoble’s video show was launched this morning. The delay in the launch was due to the PodTech.net site’s re-design apparantly.
There are some fascinating interviews there. One of the videos is of a photo walk with Thomas Hawk. Thomas is a photographer in San Francisco and works with photo sharing site Zooomr.
I did a podcast on PodLeaders with Thomas a couple of months back and it was an engrossing interview but Robert vastly improves on my podcast by interweaving photos Thomas was taking as they were walking along by the Golden Gate bridge (and by being a far better interviewer!).
The interview with Sun CEO Jonathon Schwartz was a compelling insight into why Sun still matters!
And I love the wide screen format of the video.
I can’t wait to see the JotSpot video and the Shai Agassi interview – jeez, now I’m never going to get any work done!
[Update] I see Robert has blogged about it too
